What to expect from your visit
During the consultation, we will take the time to listen to you and ask questions to make sure we understand your problem. This will include details of your current symptoms, as well as your medical history and day-to-day routine, such as exercise and daily lifestyle as these may give clues to help our diagnosis.
We will then examine your spine and any other joint related to your complaint, looking at your posture and how your body moves. It may also be necessary to carry out brief tests assessing your nervous system, or take your blood pressure.
Treatment is different for every patient, techniques used will depend on your age, fitness, and diagnosis. Osteopaths use their hands to carry out treatment using a variety of techniques. We may also discuss exercises you can do to improve posture as well increase movement and function in your everyday life.
